Found November 12, 2012 on Turn On The Jets:
Another brutal loss in what was a winnable game against the Seahawks. Now the once desperate Jets are on life support. Here are a few parting thoughts before the club flies home back East, while leaving hope in Seattle. 1 – The Game And Season Most Likely Ended Here When Dustin Keller false started in a 7-7 game on the goal line in Tebow time, the Jets were cheated out of more than a big one score lead in a defensive battle. They lost a chance to see if Tebowing might have provided a unique spark. Perhaps even more plays for the odd but energy based playmaker. The Jets needed to win in any way possible. The following play, a Mark Sanchez end zone INT, sent #6 into his too familiar mental hole, and left the Jets again wondering who, if anyone, was piloting the plane. 2 – Post Game Quotes From Cro and Sanchez: Baffling and Telling Antonio Cromartie telling those in favor of a QB change to “kiss my ass” after the loss was a loyal and noble act. It also is a decision that will be out of his hands After all, there are tickets to sell at Met Life and curiosities for many of us to pursue. Can Tebow lift another team in miraculous fashion? We all wonder. Mark Sanchez alluding to being affected by the constant shifting in and out in his post game presser may explain part of his skittish play this season. We know he has few weapons. Something else is bothering him though. It’s not physical either. His body language shows uncertainty even before kickoff. Maybe Tebow’s shadow is part of it. 3 – Welcome Back Defense Finally, in week 10, we saw a Jets defense that attacked a QB, slowed down a top notch RB, hit hard and plaued confidently all day. Kyle Wilson got beat early and the unit sagged due to fatigue late, but overall the effort was what many expected the Jets defense to put forth all year. Better late than never. Nice work fellas. 4 – Now, We Enter Uncharted Airspace The Jets are 3-6. They have few dependable weapons on offense and a QB controversy on top of a QB consistency problem. This season has the potential to fly itself into Rich Kotite era territory if the locker room begins to divide in any way. Could that happen? Recent history will tell you, its possible. The offense, again for the second straight year, can’t help the team. The special teams unit is now a mess. The two best players Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes are out for the season. If Rex Ryan loses the players, whose jobs remain safe and secure? Anyone? We wonder whose names are written in stone on the untouchable list. This is not your run of the mill 3-6 team. This is one with an inability to score and an uncanny ability to create unwanted drama for itself during the week. A dangerous combination for a team whose collective flight is losing altitude at an alarming rate. Let the blame games and the unnamed source hunting begin. Only Rex Ryan can prevent disarray and anonymous voices who may try to save their own jobs. Rex could be the last line of defense before 2012 makes it’s way down towards the landing strip of an ugly ending.

BY NICK ST. DENISOffense just isn't the New York Jets' thing.Sunday, New York's offensive line had no push in the run game and couldn't protect Mark Sanchez, and when it did, Sanchez either couldn't made a decent throw or saw his receivers, namely usually sure-handed tight end Dustin Keller, drop passes.So despite a very good showing by the defense, the Jets couldn...

Week 10 - Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

The offense looked ugly in the early going, giving up turnovers and making the Jets look like they've got a legitimate pass rush, but an improved second half performance combined with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow hosting an all-game clinic on how not to play the QB position ultimately led to a nice, satisfying victory. Also, I love how well the Seahawks are executing on Wilson...
